    Default A couple of questions

    Hey all,

    So two main questions. 1. What's the "best" health insurance in DR (best being most widely accepted in country and best bang for your buck)? 2. Does anyone have a suggestion for a security alarm system installer person in the Santo Domingo area?

    Thanks

    As you point out, "best" is relative.
    The largest and more widely accepted I think would be: ARS Universal, ARS Humano and PALIC.

    For Security alarms, try to get a security company not just some guy who happens to install alarms. Security companies will provide surveillance and response when the alarm goes off. It's more expensive, but much more effective. I think the biggest security company is Security Force Security Force

    this is one of the security companies in Santo Domingo Empresa líder de Seguridad Electrónica about the I would says Palic is the best, I used to have ARS Humano and switched to ARS Constitucion, my friends at work also switched, has too many complains now about humano, starting that they do not allow incoming calls to the customer care center from a Cellphone.

    The problem with ARS Humanos etc. is that only their top plans are accepted by the top doctors and hospitals. I have a family plan at BMI, wanted to change trying to cut costs, but noticed that to have the same coverage with ARS Humano I need to platinum plan, which costs me almost double of what I'm paying now.

    That will depend on the ages, for old people few years ago the cost was 4,500.00 dominican pesos per month, so for young people I think could be half, 2,500.00 per month.

    Don't buy your alarm system here....they will triple charge you for a wired system that will be outdated and limited. I bought my alarm system in NY before coming down here. I met the owner of the company as his "offices" were close to my work (previous job). I went there and spoke to the guy, very smart chinese engineer. He designed and programmed the system himself (Using C++ Language). I couldn't be more than happy with the system I have here. When you purchase online you are given the choice of having them (AASAlarm) program all of the sensors for you. So that when you get the system all you have to do is pay someone down here to drill holes for you to mount the motion detectors and sirens. The door and window sensors you can do yourself. The system has a SIM card slot which will work with Claro or Orange. I have mine with Orange. Here is there website: AAS Alarm Inc

    There is no insurance plan specific to Cabarete as far as I know. Health insurance is provided by national companies. As an example for you, I pay RD$950 per month for an average type plan.

    Who does the system call? I hope it's not the police...

    Maybe it just makes a lot of loud beeping noise in the middle of the night, like a lot of the car alarms do...
    (and then everybody gets ****ed off because it was only set off by the rain...) ;-)
